We help and represent pilots with government troubles, which includes government liabilities, unfiled income tax forms, audits, penalties, and related matters.
Unfortunately, pilots are prone to have late filed or unfiled tax returns. This is likely due to the distinct aspects of the work pilots perform. Pilots often work long and irregular hours. This keeps them from following up on money matters, which includes timely filing income tax forms.
Pilots are also more likely to have unsatisfied tax liabilities. This is also due to the distinct aspects of the work pilots perform. It is also due to the type of accomplishments and training that pilots have. Pilots are wise and willing to carefully consider issues before making decisions. This may result in inaction when it comes to resolving unsatisfied tax liabilities. Other pilots face the opposite problem, namely, they do not make a decision until the last minute.
Pilots are also likely to be pulled for audit by the IRS. The IRS generally views pilots as being more likely to have tax troubles. These tax troubles also stem from the distinct aspects of the work pilots perform and their skills and training, but also from their tendency to prepare their own income tax forms or rely on lower-end tax preparers.
From a tax standpoint, right or wrong, pilots are defined by unfiled or late filed income tax forms, unsatisfied tax liabilities, and government audits. There are a number of court cases and administrative rulings that demonstrate this. If you are a pilot, we can help you avoid or manage these issues.
